In the above video Will Myers teaches the basics of woodturning for woodworkers. He starts by showing how to prepare and center the wood, then discusses woodturning tools & parts of the lathe. And finally he begins roughing out a spindle for a classic cherry shaker candle table. This tutorial comes from the class and DVD: “Building the Hancock Shaker Candle Stand with Will Myers“. If you’d like to build this historical candle stand along side Will Myers, you can register here for the upcoming 3 day class at my school. It will be held Thursday – Saturday, May 10th-12th, 2018 in Earlysville, Virginia.
You can also purchase the DVD or Digital Download video in my store here.
Part 2 of this tutorial will be released in a few days, so make sure that you’re on our newsletter list (here) so you can be notified! Here are a few more photos of this charming candle stand:
